Christmas REM Review – December 2021


The Christmas REM returns once again to North America and comes with festively dressed characters along with various buffs and evolutions for existing cards. In addition to this, there will be three new monsters to potentially acquire.

As a whole, this event is terribly top-heavy as 80.1% of the total rolling pool is comprised of 5/6-star cards who will provide nothing for even a modestly well developed account. This in turn leads me to believe that this is a Monster Exchange/IAP Orb Skin event as we currently have a lucrative Seasonal Super Godfest going on right now along with PCGF in the near future.

Both these Godfests are significantly better places to spend your Magic Stones and if I had to give a TLDR for Christmas, IAP/buy Xiahou Dun (maybe Osiris ), find a friend Menoa to pair with, Monster Exchange for Gremory if you need a stellar Fire Cleric, and maybe Exchange for Selica .

Due to continuing wrist pains, I have only done Pros & Cons for notable cards and skipped the others.

Monster Bootcamp Part 1Godfest Review and Analysis

Godfest basics

When making the decision to roll or save your magic stones, you need to determine if the featured pantheons can benefit or complement your teams. Chasing for one specific monster is unwise as you will most likely be disappointed and should ideally have Godfests that overlap with many target cards. Remember all monsters that come out of the REM will qualify for Skill Inheritance so do not be too hasty when selling dupes. For a more detailed team building help, please refer to my Popular Leader’s and their Full Sub List Post which is in the process of being updated. Lastly, to find more information about a specific pantheon or monster, refer to my Master List to better refine your search. If you are considering to purchase any of the Monster Point cards, please refer to my updated Tier List for help and advice.

I also encourage you to visit my discord Discord server as it is full of knowledgeable and friendly people.


The Monster Bootcamp Part 1 Godfest features the first 6x rates for Pantheons and GFE along with actually featuring powerful cards overall.

Furthermore, each roll will yield +50 to a random stat as well as appearing at level 50.

In addition, Day 1 will feature a complimentary Tamadra with each roll (hooray?) while Day 2 will coincide with the Wisedragons and Heroic Warriors Carnival. This Carnival will feature 2x rates for the following cards:

  Heroic Warriors

  Wise Dragons (5x burst for respective colour)

Regardless, the collateral perks on either day are slim to say the least and all the focus will be on the truly exciting Pantheon and GFE line up.

Ranking the cards – Pantheons & GFE

These rankings I assign cards are my own and take into consideration the card’s value as a leader, sub, inherit, and possibly any niche role they fulfill. In order to rank in the highest tier, the card has to excel in their respective role and cannot feasibly be replaced by anyone else. This can also be thought of as a Best in Slot card and tends to have applications on the top tier teams.

Despite my best to remain neutral, there is always the potential for bias and you need to be able to examine a card and determine if it can benefit your unique Monster Box and situation. Continue reading Monster Bootcamp Part 1Godfest Review and Analysis

Three Kingdoms 2 Review and Analysis


The Three Kingdoms 2 (3K2) series is coming to North America on Friday, March 17th and will feature the new locked orb removal mechanic. In order to entice players with new cards, GungHo tends to release new/unique abilities which also helps open up new team building/inheritance possibilities. One nice thing about the 3K2 pantheon is that they are a pantheon and should in theory be easier to obtain.

The Three Kingdoms 2 are all able to transform the board to a 7×6 size and promote pairing with different leaders along with featuring the 7 combo 45 awakening. 7 combo awakening provides 2x damage for that card when hitting 7 or more combos and is a tremendous damage boost overall. While this can be problematic with absorption mechanics, we do have access to Fujin 3414 and is somewhat controllable as you can make the conscious effort to match less combos and pray for no skyfalls.

Unfortunately, due to the fact that these are new cards, they do not have an ultimate evolution and suffer from lower base stats and fewer awakenings, but hopefully their newer aspects help justify these weaknesses.

One thing you need to be aware of is their lower than perceived rates. All the 3K2 cards are 6-star rarity and will be slightly harder to acquire than a regular card.
